I truly, bodily groaned once I noticed the Billboard cowl line: “Make America Blake Once more.” It’s a takeoff of Donald Trump’s slogan “Make America Nice Once more.” Is that only a silly journal editor making a dumb wording alternative, or does the quilt line replicate Blake interview? Yeah… it displays Blake’s interview. Blake skirts across the challenge of who he’ll vote for in November, however he’s a soldier within the Battle In opposition to Political Correctness (a favourite Trump trigger) and he’s additionally a member of the False Equivalencies Membership. So, yeah, most likely a Trump voter. You possibly can learn the total Billboard piece right here. That is the political part:

“In nation music, we’re so politically appropriate and so afraid to presumably upset somebody,” he says.

Not too long ago a tea get together web site introduced, “Blake Shelton Sides With Trump on Problems with Political Correctness,” dubiously attempting to assert him for the appropriate wing. Does the singer help Donald Trump?

“I’m not going to have the political dialog with you about Trump, or about Hillary Clinton, however I’ll let you know this: Whether or not you’re keen on him or hate him, he says what he thinks, and he has confirmed that you simply don’t at all times must be so afraid. Lots of people are pulling for him, irrespective of how a lot Hollywood fights it. I see individuals who don’t like him go and beat up folks that do like him. You inform me, who’s loopy right here?” Shelton, who says he’ll vote in November, provides, “I most likely want there was an alternative choice, however there’s not.”

After this interview went large yesterday, many websites ran tales about Blake’s seeming admiration for Donald Trump’s potential to “say what he thinks.” To not point out Trump’s potential to make it potential for white males to NOT be afraid after they’re saying one thing un-PC, as in saying one thing racist, sexist, derogatory in the direction of folks with disabilities, derogatory in the direction of individuals who imagine in democracy and extra. I’m frankly extra disgusted with Blake’s “woe is the white man who has to observe what he says” act than his slippery false equivalency that each Trump and Clinton are equally terrible in some way. Anyway, folks seen and Blake determined to appropriate the file on Twitter. Some assorted feedback from Blake’s Twitter (I’m not embedding as a result of he would possibly tweet-and-delete):

Hey earlier than this will get going prefer it at all times does… I haven’t enforced ANYBODY for president. And I not going to. I don’t try this sh-t.

My remark about “want there was an alternative choice however there’s not” is throughout the board…interval. Now go dig up one other story.

When y’all what the information about these items watch ALL the channels.. Learn ALL the articles. Make YOUR thoughts up. After which vote.

It’s loopy that on this second in time… With all the pieces occurring on the earth that spinning my phrases is so necessary to the media.
